Always In Motion Since 1930

Levant Express Transport SAL was established in 1930 by a German organization and was very active in the transit business to Iraq, Kuwait, Jordan and neighboring countries. Due to the start of the Lebanese war in the 70’s, the management composed mainly by Germans nationals had to evacuate the country. In 1992, Levant Express was acquired by the Cargomaster Group & it is since fully owned and managed by Cargomaster.

Levant Express Transport is one of the oldest freight forwarding company in the Middle East. It is also the 92nd company established in Lebanon hence our Commercial Registry Nbr 92.
